Cogs not starting (linux version) -- SOLVED
Hi, I thought I would post this in case anyone else has this problem. I'm running this on a Thinkpad T61 with the integrated Intel graphics (GMA965). It could be that the low specs are causing the problem?

Afer downloading Cogs, I played it for the first time and changed some of the game settngs to higher values from their defaults. The game played ok (choppy sound), but when I tried to restart the game later, I got nothing. In the terminal where I started Steam, there were lots of warning messages but I think the relevant one might be

Couldn't set 1440x900 OpenGL video mode: Couldn't find matching GLX visual Game removed: AppID 26500 "Cogs", ProcID 6317

Anyway, I was able to start Cogs by editing ~/.local/share/Cogs/cogs.ini to return the game settings to their minimum values, which look like this:

VolumeMusic 0.099349 VolumeEffects 0.087037 EnableShadows false EnableFilters false Fullscreen false IntervalImmediate false Resolution 0 WindowPosX 0 WindowPosY 0 Antialiasing 0 Language english

At first I tried only changing "Fullscreen" from "true" to "false", but that didn't to the trick, so I changed everything to its lowest value so now I can at least start the game.

After more experimenting, the problem is with the antialiasing setting. Antialiasing needs to be turned off (or it needs to be set to 0 in cogs.ini).
